While you may feel cooler standing beneath a ceiling fan, the fan itself doesn't really cool down the room, it merely circulates the air without changing the temperature of the room. That's why it feels cool when an individual stands (or sits) beneath it, but not. The fan moves air better if it is running counterclockwise in the summertime. A large, low speed fan will actually move more air than a faster or smaller model, so keep that in mind choosing a new ceiling fan for your home.
If you're not thrilled about the idea of spending money on new curtains, consider investing in sun-blocking window coverings. These coverings are affordable on virtually any budget and are very easy to attach to windows. Just keep in mind that blackout coverings aren't as resilient as sun-blocking curtains and are unlikely to last as long. Additionally, stick-on coverings that have been removed from windows generally cannot be reattached.
The summertime sun stands to add quite a bit of heat to your bedroom. Although air conditioning and ceiling fans can go a long way in keeping this space nice and cool, the heat generated by the sun doesn't make this task easy. So, if your bedroom is located in an area that receives a significant amount of sunlight, invest in sun-blocking curtains. While a little bit of sunlight is still liable to find its way into the room, the amount of sunlight that penetrates this space will be significantly reduced.
